Wireless (EGR Wi-Fi)

EGR Wi-Fi: The EGRnet Wireless Network

The password for connecting to EGR Wi-Fi WPA2 is engineering.

EGR Wi-Fi is a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) provided by the College of Engineering and is available to all MSU faculty, staff and students, as well as guests of engineering faculty and staff. DECS Wi-Fi There are over 115 Access Points (APs) installed strategically to provide coverage throughout the building and even in the courtyard and cafe areas. The wireless network traffic is separated from normal wired traffic for security reasons. The APs tunnel traffic through to a group of centralized wireless controllers, managed by DECS, to ensure a consistent and effective network configuration.

EGR Wi-Fi supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) standards. The EGRnet wireless network uses the SSID, or network name of EGR Wi-Fi.
